Springer author Carlos M. Duarte awarded Spanish science prize
Date:2/7/2008

The marine scientist Carlos M. Duarte was awarded the Premio Nacional de Investigacin in Madrid at the end of 2007 for his outstanding research along with four other laureates. At the award ceremony attended by the Spanish royal family in October, Carlos Duarte was presented with the prize by King Juan Carlos himself. The jury of the Spanish science prize said that Duarte was one of the leading researchers on the marine ecosystem. The work he has conducted over the past few years forms the basis for further research into global climate change. Duartes knowledge about links to marine organisms provide valuable input in this field.

After completing a doctorate in limnology, the study of inland waters, in Montreal (Canada), Carlos Duarte returned to his native Spain and worked as a postdoc at the Institute of Marine Sciences in Barcelona. Since 1989, he has been conducting research in various posts for Spains highest scientific research council, the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientfica (CSIC). Since 1999, he has been working at the Instituto Mediterrneo de Estudios Avanzados in Mallorca, an institute for advanced studies attached to the University of the Balearic Islands.

Carlos Duartes work is reflected in international research projects throughout Europe, South-East Asia, Mexico, the USA, Australia and the Arctic. He has published well over 280 scientific articles and is co-editor of the Springer books Seagrasses: Biology, Ecology and Conservation and Aquaculture in the Ecosystem. He is also co-editor-in-chief of the journal Estuaries and Coasts, the official journal of the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation, which has been published by Springer since October 2007. Carlos Duarte has been on the federations governing board since 2002. In 2006, he was elected President of the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography.

The Spanish science prize has been awarded by Spains Ministry of Education and Science since 2001. Each prize winner receives 80,000. This year, there were five laureates from a wide variety of disciplines. The prize is awarded to Spanish researchers whose work has benefited science at an international level and has led to the benefit and progress of humanity, sustainable development and technology transfer.
